Foundation Stage

In Term 5 (Summer Term 1) the Foundation Stage will be asking Can you change it?

Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned by the following Thursday.

The class teacher is Miss Honey and Mr Willbery is the teaching assistant in the Foundation Stage. Mr William-Bowden and Mrs Harris also work as teaching assistants in Foundation Stage. 

On Friday Miss Honey sends home a Foundation Stage update. Please read these so that you know exactly what the class will be focusing on the following week and how you can help at home with your child's learning. 

Homework will also be sent home every Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday.

Reading books need to be handed in with Reading Records when they are to be changed. 

The children will be doing Forest school this term and next. Please make sure your child has a pair of wellies in school at all times.
